Reality monitoring in hypnosis: a pilot investigation
In a pilot investigation of reality monitoring in hypnosis, 10 high and 10 low hypnotizable participants were administered a hypnotic suggestion to hallucinate a visual shape on a wall. For half the participants, an image was subtly projected onto the wall at the commencement of the suggestion and then subsequently removed. For the remaining participants, the projected image was initially absent and subsequently projected. Participants completed ratings of belief in the suggestion during hypnosis and also provided subjective reports of the suggestion during a subsequent Experiential Analysis Technique session. High hypnotizable participants who had the projected image introduced at the end of the suggestion provided comparable belief ratings when the image was present and absent. In contrast, highs who had the projected image presented first reported less belief when the image was absent than when it was present. Low hypnotizable participants rated the hallucination more strongly when the image was projected than when it was not projected. These pilot data are discussed in terms of developing a paradigm to objectively index the perceived reality of hypnotically suggested experiences.

Intra-office conflicts often happen because of the way different people or groups operate mentally. Simplistically, I look at how a person’s typical use of their brain affects the way that they approach problems. This can easily be divided into feelings (i.e. limbic) and thinking (i.e. cognitive). Thus a person who takes a rather emotional approach will frequently be in conflicts with those who are thinkers. Likewise, if a thinking person attempts to reason with a feeling one, they will not connect. Of course, this does not mean that two limbic-oriented people will not have a difficulty...
My comments about smoking marijuana are very similar to those that may previously about smoking cigarettes. A marijuana smoker was once introduced to the drug. At that point he or she experienced in neurological effects of their act. Whether this was done initially as a social event or murder cases and individual event, the continued smoking marijuana is reinforced as I habit due the repetitive nature, the neurological stimulation, and the social benefits. These seemingly positive attributes are sufficient to overcome any inhibition regarding health concerns (to include neurological damage),...
Flying to your destination in a commercial aircraft is the safest and one of most popular modes of transportation. The amount of regulations and the level of control exceed that of any other method of getting to your destination. Yet, too many people cannot enjoy flying due to a learned and admittedly illogical fear.
Our brain allows us to anticipate. Often this superior function of the human brain provides us a valuable service. Without it many of the typical functions of everyday life would not be possible. However, since most of our brain and body is meant to react and does not...
